There have been several changes to the FAFSA this year and UTPB is available to help. You don’t have to attend or be planning to attend UTPB to take advantage of this resource. At the event, UTPB’s team of experts will walk you through the process of filling out your FAFSA. Those in attendance are asked to bring their W2’s for the year 2022.
